Weekend Reading.

Happy weekend! I am leading with a photo of me reading Ready Player One because I saw the movie yesterday (the day it opened because duh). It was so different from the book, but still so so good. I was in a bit of a rut this week – I was really sick, my phone broke, and so on and so forth but I’m feeling a lot better now. I have a trip to Charleston planned next week with my parents, and our podcast launched this week so there is that! The response has been INCREDIBLE so far – Becca and I are so thankful for all of the sharing + support! We are recording our next two episodes today and I’m so excited… this has turned into a really fun little project.

The best places to go in May.

The rainbow dress of my dreams, at a great price!

All about Instagram’s newest algorithm change.

Loved this: 5 ways to immediately feel happier.

This military jacket was a big splurge but it’s pretty much perfect in every way! (Also love that it’s convertible.)

Something I’m constantly working at – better posture!

I always forget how much I love this face mask. It’s so relaxing + makes skin so soft.

Carrie looks so great in yellow.

Made me laugh so hard.

I obviously need this palm leaf dress.

I died over Martha Stewart’s new closets… and her calico puffs!

How cute is this lemon print dress?

Makes me miss Tulum.

Loved this conversation between two women I really admire: Garance DorΓ© and Kelly Wearstler.

The embroidery on this pink lace dress is so pretty.

This creamsicle smoothie sounds so yummy – and healthy!

Such a pretty top.

Ugh, I’m crushing on these woven cane pieces too! (Also: this chair!)

Love seeing Mackenzie’s home come together!

Really into kimonos right now and this green one is gorgeous.

Little luxuries under $50.

This trench is affordable and SO cute!

Three stages of failure; + how to fix them.

Jenn’s trip looks so fun (and has me craving sunshine)!

This striped sweater is really pretty… and a great price.

Ahhhh Morocco!

Love (and ordered this week) this straw tote – it’s perfect for both the beach and errands in the city.

Really loved how Chassity swapped the belt on her trench. Such a fun but easy change!

Helena looks stunning in this gorgeous maxi dress.

This classic trench would be a big splurge but it’s pretty perfect. I love the clean lines.

All of Blair’s photos from Cartagena have been amazing but I especially love this outfit.

Newly hooked on this overnight face mask – it’s so good for firming!

Loving Hitha’s new skincare series.

Thought this was super interesting – what kind of a friend are you? As an INFJ this is me to a tee.

For some reason I’m super into this slashed up t-shirt!

    Definitely looking forward to seeing RPO after reading the book! One thing that irks me about book to movie adaptations is the characters who are described in the books as overweight, less than average looking, or really anything less than perfect are beautiful celebrities in the movies! Still dying to see it though!

    I saw Real player one this weekend and I totally loved it! As a mega fan of “Back to the future,” I noticed so many references from the movie! Totally loved it.
